From a Norwegian term meaning “to comfort” or “to console,” hygge has gained in popularity in recent years. There’s even a hygge line at Target.
But it’s more than cozy living.
As author Jamie Erickson says, it’s a way of making the mundane and necessary meaningful and beautiful. It’s soul rest.
Her new book, “Holy Hygge: Creating a Place for People to Gather and the Gospel to Grow,” shows us how.
Jamie is a homeschooling mom to five kids. She encourages other moms on the Mom to Mom podcast, through her blog The Unlikely Homeschool and as a speaker and author.
Now she has given us a guide to hygge as it appeals to our desire for slow living and shared moments. For warmth and simplicity. For home.
And all of this is sacred, Jamie says, when understood in the light of Christ and his kingdom.
Jamie is on the show to share how this Danish lifestyle pairs with the deep, theological truths of the gospel—and how hygge can help us make a home where people can find God, especially as we enter this New Year.
